PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) -- Candidates in Rhode Island�s 2006 Senate race are off to a strong start when it comes to fund-raising.

Since announcing his candidacy on February Third, Secretary of State Matt Brown more than half a (m) million dollars.

He�s challenging Republican Senator Lincoln Chafee, who raised just over 136-thousand dollars during the same period from January First through March 31st.

According to The Providence Journal, after expenses, Brown had almost 400-thousand dollars left, while Chafee had 765-thousand of the more than one (m) million dollars he had amassed since he last faced the voters in 2000.

Less than two weeks into his campaign for Chafee�s seat, former Attorney General Sheldon Whitehouse opened his Senate account with 360-thousand dollars. Whitehouse is a Democrat, like Brown.
